How did you get into real estate?

I have moved from town to town multiple times over the years and purchased and sold several properties.  I learn something new each time as a Buyer, Seller, and Investor. By happenstance, my husband and I met Connie Carson as the agent on duty at RLP about 4 years ago. Several dozen properties later, and some up’s and down’s, Connie and Julie Carson helped us find the one.

Helping others experience the same joy, ease and understanding is what brought me here.
